This months public meeting will be in the form of a community discussion about the future of local centres.
Belconnen is unique amongst the Canberra town districts in having so many local centres in a state of decline. Three no longer exist and six have lost their supermarket. Come along and tell us what your local centre means to you.
Several guest speakers will open the discussion, focusing on different aspects:
Tony Senti from Combined Residents’ Action Association;
Simone Penkethman from Belconnen Community Services; and
Peter Walker of Peter Blackshaw Real Estate, with
Bruce Taggart and Julie Anne Clegg from Aranda Residents Group.
Please note the change of venue from the usual place. Belconnen Theatre, Belconnen Community Centre, corner Chandler and Swanston Streets. The Belconnen Community Centre is adjacent to the Belconnen Library.
